Chris Ratcliffe/Bloomberg via Getty Images(SAN FRANCISCO) – Facebook’s Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg was originally supposed to have been on the Asiana Airlines flight that crash landed at San Francisco International Airport Saturday afternoon, Sandberg announced in a Facebook post.

“My family, colleagues Debbie Frost, Charlton Gholson and Kelly Hoffman and I were originally going to take the Asiana flight that just crash-landed. We switched to United so we could use miles for my family’s tickets,” She explained. “Our flight was scheduled to come in at the same time, but we were early and landed about 20 minutes before the crash.”

Sandberg also said that her friend David Eun, a well-known tech executive and Executive Vice President at Samsung Electronics, was on the Asiana flight and was fine. Eun tweeted a photo of the crash after safely getting off the plane.

Law enforcement agents say the crash appears to have been an accident.

It is unknown if there were any casualties at this time.
